Fiske Associates Osmometer, Model 210, for Osmolality Measurement
The Fiske Associates Model 210 Micro Osmometer determines the osmolality of solutions using freezing point depression (FPD). Ideal for serum, urine or other bodily fluids in clinical applications; and media or formulations in pharmaceutical, biotech or industrial applications.
Automated, single sample, designed to process a 20 µL sample, and 90-second test time. The Model 210 provides the best accuracy and precision in the market today.
Advanced Instruments also supplies ControLine™ Products
Method – Freezing Point Depression Osmometry
Osmometry measures the total molar concentration of dissolved solids in any solution. The freezing point of a solution is depressed in direct relation to the amount of solute in solution. Click here for a more detailed explanation.
Uses and Applications – Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine/Endocrinology, Urology/Renal Function, Surgery/Critical Care, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Pharmacy, General Quality Control. Click here for a more detailed explanation.
